  • As moral support let me say that if I had been in the "reading committee" this year I would have probably voted your proposal high (of course, only it has been also of technically high quality: typos and boring technology will bring down even an interesting topic).

    My criterion is simple, really: if a talk makes me sit up and lean forward, that is, if it is interesting, it is good. Different is interesting. Honestly, who the fuck wants to hear about yet another web application du jour, be it a content management system, ticketing system, blogging system, whatever, or the fav hype of the hour, web services. I don't know about you people but I get to do and listen and suffer that all day long at work-- having to listen to the same crap at a conference would be extremely painful. Even if the software would be beautifully designed, implemented, or just look cool, if it's common, its booooring.

    My leaning was pretty obvious (I hope) in previous years: I went for the wacky, for the off-mainstream. Maybe that's not what people want to hear and that's why I got censored off the committee this year, maybe it's all a conspiracy :-) (Hi, gnat!)
